Monday 9th April.

Just when things looked to be improving and the side was becoming a little more settled, Lee Morris was recalled by Derby County today. When he joined us Derby were looking to be reasonably safe from the threat of relegation, but a run of poor results recently meant that Jim Smith felt that Morris might still have a role to play in keeping them out of the first division. It’s a huge blow indeed for Town, as Morris seemed to be revelling in his wide left role, and with Facey and Booth spearheading the attack we actually looked capable of creating and converting chances.

There is no respite at the moment, and Town have no time to bask in the warm afterglow of the smash and grab raid at Molineux as they visit Preston tomorrow night. Following their promotion last season they have surprised many by being in the top 6 for much of the season, and I for one am very surprised as they looked nothing special when they visited the McAlpine during one of our lowest periods. They looked more than happy to take a point home with them at a time when most teams were leaving the A62 with maximum points, and although it is often said that the league table doesn’t lie we’ll see tomorrow whether it can tell the odd fib.

Thankfully, apart from the departure of Lee Morris, the squad seems to have come through the Wolves game reasonably unscathed and this includes Chris Holland who made his first appearance on Saturday since late February.

A big thank you to Machala for putting up with me doing this and Ian for his support and my Mum for her proof reading.
